“I don’t know. We’ll just have to wait and see. Results have been varied in how it affects different communities.”

“I’m not a smoker, but I know if I have a glass of wine I enjoy music better. So I understand how that could be someone’s vice and it would make it less enjoyable.”

“Ultimately, I don’t think it’s going to have any long-term effect. I’ve been to San Francisco and New York, which have incredible music scenes, and they haven’t been affected.”

“I think the bars will initially see a drop in population, but if people want to see a good show, they’ll come anyway. And probably get a longer break.”
